Scrap-a-licious

I've been thinking about Allison's Suggestive Sunday all week. This week the challenge is to use scraps, which we all have plenty of. Today, I had some time to dig through my piles and use up a few bits. I made two cards with just scraps, and can make many many more, but I need to go visit with DH before he leaves town again Monday...

I wish the green ink I used stood out a little more on this kraft tag. I had every green out, and ended up choosing my Whispers Archival in Pine. The flower is a Prima, topped with a new Center Kisses flower that I won in the Prima prize package. It arrived today, and oh, what fun! The very center of the flower is a Sprinkles brad from Queen & Co. The rick rack is May Arts, purchased from Verve Visual. The swirly frame around the tag is from Studio G, and I used my Sakura glaze pen on it. I added some Sakura Stardust glitter pen to the sentiment as well.

Here's a close-up of the flower, and you can see the glaze, too:Next, I wanted to use these gorgeous scraps of DP, but don't think the final product is quite up to snuff. I didn't have the right base card color, and settled for white. This was Cuttlebug embossed and swiped with pale yellow chalks. The sentiment is Studio G and the flowers are Primas, centered with Antique Copper Making Memories brads. Well, I have to work a bit in the morning tomorrow. Don't think I'll have a chance to stamp again until tomorrow night. The weather here is supposed to be gorgeous, so we'll probably get started on the garden in the afternoon. There is a lot of clean up to do before we can get ready to plant in a few weeks. But oh! to be outside in sunshine again!

Have a good weekend, and thanks for looking!

These are lovely (but I think I like the second one the best...I think it is because I have been making masculine cards all week!). Thanks for playing with me!

Great use of your scraps! Both cards turned out great!

The weather is supposed to be nice here too. I'm hoping to do some yard work Sunday after church.
